40 students and graduates of the University of Alicante (UA) have participated this Tuesday, May 25, in the Odyssey-Digital District Program: <<Entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow>>, which we have organized together with the Employment Center of the University of Alicante.

The participants have seen firts-hand the operation of the companies in our hub, such as Odyssey Robotics, DODIT, SPADRONE, Avamed Sinergy and Focus360º. This visit, framed in the Odyssey-Digital District Program has offered them the opportunity to learn from successful business systems and get to know the business fabric of Alicante through real, practical and current cases.

The activity has been organized into two groups of students who have visisted all the companies and met their managers, in spaces adapted to Covid capacity and with all security measures.
